During this three-day class we will approach landscape design from the ground up. Students will learn how to analyze a site considering soils, slopes, sun and shadow, access and circulation, drainage, etc. Site development, building placement, and materials will also be covered. Field trips to gardens and nurseries will help students start to visualize actual garden designs and become more familiar with plants. Students will design a landscape that draws inspiration from the natural world, accommodates their needs, and is aesthetically pleasing. Bring pictures of your site and other intriguing landscapes, and ideas that you have been considering. All Levels.
